The ninth annual Barrack Hill Ball Roll will take place on Monday August 3rd at 4 pm. This is a lottery like no other where thousands and thousands of coloured numbered balls cascade and bounce down the steepest hill in Cobh – West View. This is a fundraiser in aid of Cobh Youth Services. Balls are on sale in local shops at €2 each and on the day. There are cash prizes for the first four balls that pass the finish line.


The hugely entertaining Big Ball Uphill challenge will take place before the main event, where teams of three will have to roll a big exercise ball UP THE HILL in a relay. There is no entry fee and entries can be made by contacting Sinead Morgan at Cobh Youth Services on 021-4814640 .
